I’m a big proponent of having a wardrobe full of staples that you’ll wear over and over. There’s nothing worse than having a closet of items you’ll only wear once, right?! Of course, a striped tee is always one of my top staple picks, along with a great pair of black jeans. But one item I didn’t have until recently was a long gray vest! Vests are a staple that can be worn to work and on the weekend, especially when they’re a tailored version like this one.
I’d definitely recommend sticking with a neutral color like gray, black, tan or even a soft pink when it comes to selecting a vest. You’ll be able to remix those neutrals with any other color combination or print you have in your closet! Although you could definitely go with a shorter vest, a longer cut is a more modern version and is so flattering. It really streamlines your figure, creating a shapely silhouette. And what woman doesn’t want that?!
Want more long vest inspiration? You can see how I styled my long black draped vest here! Draped vests are a more casual version of a tailored long vest, but still versatile for the weekend! I’ve also got plenty of striped tee inspo for ya! (If that doesn’t make you want to buy all the striped tees, I don’t know what will!) And of course you can get all the black jeans outfit inspiration here too!

I like your vest with the striped tee, I just bought my first vest in the Christmas sales as I was unsure about them before I use it for warm weather as I want my arms covered when it’s cold, haha! I need to try it with stripes next.
Hope you are having a lovely week 🙂

So what is the brand of the vest?
I guess that is to say, the alternative is not really that similar (nor available) and looking to see if I can find it elsewhere.
The exact one I’m wearing is sold out and the option I linked must have just sold out! Here is another option: http://bit.ly/2kClRfk
